Young Architecture

An exhibition with 28 master’s theses from Nordic and Baltic architecture schools

In the 200 sqm exhibition Young Architecture, architectural students from Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia showed their student dissertation works. Sweden was represented with dissertations from Chalmers University of Technology and from Umeå University. Each architectural university selected up to four dissertation works, most of which are by individual students whereas some are made by a student team.

Architecture faces, much as our society in general, many future challenges. The exhibition Young Architecture showcases new, exciting ideas and solutions in the area of architecture.

Architecture schools from these cities were represented:

  • Helsinki
  • Aarhus
  • Gothenburg
  • Tallin
  • Copenhagen
  • Trondheim
  • Riga
  • Tallin
  • Umeå
  • Vilnius

28 Master’s Theses from Nordic and Baltic Architecture Schools



A curator of fresh thinking


The person who was given the honourable assignment of curating the exhibition is Hilda Alfredsson. She is also a young woman with a strong interest in both architecture and exhibitions. We took the opportunity to ask her some questions before the Nordic Architectural Forum opened its doors.

Young architecture with sustainability in focus


In Copenhagen, there are many options open to architecture students. They can choose to follow as many as 12 different directions, from furniture design and landscape architecture to transformation, where the focus is on construction technology and building. However, neither technology nor aesthetics takes top priority at the moment; instead, the main focus is always on the same thing: sustainability. We have interviewed Jakob Brandtberg Knudsen, who leads the architectural training in Copenhagen.
